Hi - If photographs would be okay, we are building up digital photo
content to launch a digital archive (due out later this year). We
have lots of mini-photograph collections that we would love help to
scan. If it's exclusive to books, we might still be interested on a
more limited scale. We could try out digitizing a couple key pieces
and feature them as we launch our digital archive too.

> Is there a book scanning project you are interested in doing?

> Does this sound interesting to pursue?
